Evaluate My Diet

  1. Evaluate My Diet


    Age: 21
    Height: 5'9"
    Weight: 170lbs
    Body Type: Ecto/Meso combo or "skinny fat"
    Goal: Lean, athletic look. Lean out while gaining muscle.

    Meal 1

    16oz skim milk
    1/2 cup oats
    1 heaping scoop peanut butter
    1 scoop whey

    Meal 2
    4 whole egss
    2 potatoes
    16oz Sunny D

    Meal 3

    12" Italian sub
    16oz water

    Meal 4
    6 oz chicken breast
    1/2 can baked beans
    16oz water

    Meal 5

    Peanut butter and jelly sandwich
    16 oz skim milk

    Meal 6

    8 oz skim milk
    1 scoop whey

    Calories = 3950
    Fat = 140
    Carbs = 400
    Protein = 270

    I want to lean out, so I understand I need to lower my body fat. However, I also want to build muscle. How can I lower my body fat (cut calories) while building muscle (surplus calories)?

    These numbers aren't exactly down to the last macro nutrient, but fairly close. Can I accomplish my goal following these numbers? Any suggestions?


  2. I would change the sunny d to real oj. Then I would change the italian sub to turkey and have it on whole grain bread. You can accomplish your goals this way. If you train hard enough, and do some cardio to help you eat more. You can adjust your calories up or down based on your first few weeks results. If you dont like what you see in the mirror than adjust your calories.

  3. Unless you are completely brand new to lifting, then you will have to pick a primary goal. Either lose bodyfat or gain muscle mass. The muscle mass you have might be more evident if you lose some fat, but you aren't going to build any significant amount of muscle mass while on a calorie deficit to lose fat. As far as your listed diet, it has plenty of protein, so that aspect is fine. Beyond that, just adjust your carb and fat intake until your calorie intake yields the result you are after (fat loss or muscle mass gain).

  4. I know that. I was just feeding off the fact that most new to lifting will think they are both losing fat, and gaining muscle just from what they initially see in the mirror the first month or so. You are correct though.

    Definitely would agree to making the suggested switches
    If you fall apart in crisis, then there wasn't much to you to start with

  6. I use a good multi vitamin, Barleans fish oil, DAA, Tribulus, avena sativa, urtica diotica, etc, glutamine, BCAA, Maximize V2, Rightnow I am mixing muscle millk light with Optimum whey for a 50 gm shake. IT tastes great.

    your ratios are way off. research Ketosis diet or Paleo diet.

    protein 340g
    carbs 100g
    fat 100g

  8. He is not trying to go Keto.

  9. ketosis has 50g or less carbs.

  10. Yes, I have done Keto diets for Contest purposes. Brother, I would keep the carbs whole grain, but dont overdo it. I would keep the carbs to around 25 gm per meal, and 40 pre, and post workout if you are training hard. Minimize the fat for your post workout meal, to maximize absorption. This is where whey isolate comes in with creatine, glutamine, and simple carbs. Dextrose is about the best. Remember to do cardio in the AM on empty stomach if you can.
